Collaboration is one of the best tools through which to progress. One example of this is the partnership agreement recently signed between IED Barcelona and Pico, a company specialising in virtual reality hardware and software, which allows the school’s professional XR Lab equipment to be expanded to better serve students.
In this way, the Motion Graphics & Video, Media Design, Master in Design for Virtual Reality, Master in Interaction Design and Master in Digital Transformation students can add two more models of virtual reality glasses to those available in their programmes to date. These are the Pico Neo 3 Pro EYE and the Pico Neo 3 Pro.
Further, under this agreement, Pico also provides the school with profiles of professionals in virtual reality hardware and software so they can carry out training as well as learning sessions for students. The technical service and maintenance of the equipment assigned to IED Barcelona will also be carried out by the company.
The partnership agreement was signed on 10 November at the IED Barcelona facilities, with the attendance of Heitor Bravi, Sales and Partnerships Director of Pico; Agustí Valls, Director of IED Spain; Andrea Marchesi, Director of IED Barcelona; Marina Ojan, Director of IED Barcelona’s Master School; and Mery Glez, Director of the Visual Communication school at IED Barcelona.
On the occasion of the inauguration of the fair, Josep Gonzàlez-Cambray talked with Andrea Marchesi, Director of the Design School.
A panel of experts moderated by IED Barcelona analysed the role that design energy has for people and the environment in the round table “Light and Energy: Habitat and city”.
The exhibition will be open until next February 26th at Fundación Francisco Giner de los Ríos
